Hollywood actor George Clooney
is set to take the lead role in the forthcoming G.I. Joe
movie, according to reports. The Michael Clayton
star has beat actor Mark Wahlberg
as favorite to star in the movie adaptation of the action TV series.
According to Moviehole.net, Clooney has abandoned his role in director Joe Carnahan's film White Jazz
in favor of appearing as the action hero.
A source tells the website, "Rumor is that one of the reasons he (Clooney) walked away from White Jazz was not only due to scheduling conflicts but also because he is looking for a blockbuster to star in.
"The word in the Hollywood grapevine is Clooney has been offered a role in G.I. Joe and it's the character of Duke."
